Document Description
The Project involves improvements to approximately 43,000 linear feet (8 miles) of an existing levee system surrounding the City of Foster City along the San Francisco Bayfront. The purpose of the Project is to provide flood protection in accordance with updated Federal Emergency Management Agency guidelines and retain FEMA accreditation for the City's existing levee system. The improved levee system will be designed to adapt to future sea-level rise while maintaining public access along the levee system and protections for sensitive species. Levee improvements would include a combination of three different levee types: 1) sheet pile floodwall, 2) earthen levee, 3) conventional floodwall. The State Lands Commission action is an approval of a 35-year General Lease - Public Agency Use through April 5, 2054.
